Improvements made to website main page

Postby wammie » Tue Aug 18, 2009 8:19 pm

The sidebar on our website main page has been improved. I've added some quick links, removed a couple of unnecessary links, and changed the "meta" section name to "blog access." Hopefully this will help newcomers and all of us navigate more easily to the juicy stuff.

One thing that I noticed is that when I'm browsing the forum and click the click the TC Maker banner at the top of the page I'm sent to http://www.twincitiesmaker.com .
Clicking the HOME link from there brings me to http://www.tcmaker.org .
The .com page seems to have outdated blog postings.
I'm using Safari 3.2.2

Thanks! The banner link has been changed to tcmaker.org. I frequently access twincitiesmaker.com. Can you be more specific on what you mean by "outdated blog postings?" We know that some links or images in older posts reference twincitiesmaker.com, but they should reference the same data. Have you cleared your temporary cache files in Safari?

I did a complete reset of Safari which flushes everything (cookies, history, cache, etc)
Yet when I access http://www.tcmaker.org the first post is "Building a flutterwumper" posted August 16th, 2009 by uptownmaker.
http://www.twincitiesmaker.com has "Social Get-together Tonight!" posted August 5th, 2009 by uptownmaker.

It looks ok to me, both urls show the same info.
Make it happen.

Weird. I tried accessing both sites using a computer in the lab running IE 6.0 and got the same results as before.
Different home page content between http://www.tcmaker.org/ and http://www.twincitiesmaker.com/
And that computer had never before accessed either site.
I'll try tonight at home with Firefox on my Mac and see what happens.

OK. I accessed both http://www.tcmaker.org and http://www.twincitiesmaker.com from home on my Mac with Safari 4 and got the same content.
So I'm going to consider this a non issue since the banner link and all my bookmarks are updated.
Sorry for all the fuss.
